This variant with Black Muscat was made by blending 5 barrels of mature, barrel aged Gold with hand harvested Black Muscat grapes from Thornbrook Orchard in Nashdale NSW. We picked the grapes with our friends Matt and Suzanne from The Masonry in Seattle on 21 March 2019, drove them back to Sydney and immediately transferred them into a stainless steel variable capacity tank without crushing or destemming. We allowed for their fermentation to naturally begin with the native yeasts on the skins of the fruit. After three weeks, we removed the juice at the bottom of the ferment and blended in 3 mature barrels of Gold and allowed the fruit to macerate and referment with the beer for 2.5 months. In mid June, we blended in 2 barrels of Gold for necessary structure and balance. It was packaged on 10 July and allowed to go through a tertiary fermentation for carbonation and conditioning for 8 weeks before release.

This beer opens with a gently attractive perfumey, rose water aroma to be expected from the muscat grapes, however unlike its white skinned sibling, the aroma moves toward layers of spice and earthiness. The palate is delicate and resembles this continuance from sweet fruit and turkish delight flavours towards a structural spice, phenolic and tannin finish
